Andy S. Currier is a British former rugby league footballer of the 1980s and 90s. A rangy centre, he achieved representative selection for Great Britain Lions and played most of his club football with Widnes as well as stints with Featherstone Rovers, Warrington Wolves and Australian team the Balmain Tigers. At the time of his retirement, he was co-holder of the Widnes club record for most points in a match, with 34. He played out the final years of his football career with English rugby union teams.
Son of Harry Currier, who in 1969 founded Widnes-based rugby league club, Halton Simms, Andy Currier began his professional career with Widnes. He later helped them to consecutive championships in 1988 and 1989, and then to victory in the 1989 World Club Challenge. Shortly after that he moved to Australia to play with Sydney club, the Balmain Tigers, and became the NSWRL's top point scorer for the 1989 season. Currier also played in the memorable 1989 Winfield Cup grand final loss against Canberra at the end of that season.
At the end of the NSWRL 1990 season Currier returned to England to continue playing for Widnes, helping them to the Challenge Cup final in 1993. At the end of that season he was purchased by Featherstone Rovers along with two other test players in a bold recruitment drive. He later moved to Warrington before playing the last of his rugby league with his original club, Widnes.
